The exhibition was styled to mimic a traditional peasant house: the house proper, the porch and the hallway. Within the house there are the perennial things: the elevated bed with headboard, the table, the clothes chest with clothes for Sundays, church, weddings and also funerals, a prayer nook with icons, earthenware hooked to the rafters, a place for receiving guests, a place for three day wakes (if the family wanted them), a place to organize weddings, etc… The porch houses the stove, a small bed for the old folk who also watched over the children’s cradle, the table where daily meals were served, pots, dishes, mugs and even a loom. Three themed corners were arranged in a diff...erent part of the room: the Christian corner, the historical corner and the cultural corner. The Christian corner includes two royal icons painted on wood, from the early twentieth century and an older pew from approx.1862. The History corner includes, as graphic representations, archaeological findings from Biia: the golden bowl, the Neolithic ax and others. The expo ends with photos and diplomas that cultural organizations obtained over time at various contests and festivals.
